Children’s book illustration/character design

Written by Pippa Taylor.

When his Mum drives Gareth to school she tells him to look out for animals, but even though he looks and looks he can never see them. However, when he says this to his Mum she tells him the animals are in such silly places that Gareth can’t believe they’re true. After all, horses don’t go to the hairdressers, ducks don’t go to the dentist and SHEEP DON’T GO SHOPPING!

In Sheep Don’t Go Shopping, young children of all ages will find something to entertain and delight. From the humorous illustrations to the very silly stories Gareth’s Mum creates, all children will enjoy this funny story of school-run entertainment. You never know, on your next trip to school you may just spot a sheep out shopping!
